“Excellent centrally located and relaxing, peaceful stay”

We really enjoyed our stay here. Mohammad & Rosie were very responsive in emails, showing us around, suggesting things / places to see or try, which we found very helpful. They are very accommodating, speak excellent English and cheerful. They arranged our ATV rental (4 days; thru Flying Pirates) & sent a driver to pick us up when we arrived (called cell but didn’t answer; called on home phone & answered. Said he has issues with cell/carrier service).

Once at the condo, Rosie greeted us. She showed us to the unit which is up one flight of stairs. It was raining but the condo was still bright & airy. You're drawn to the view of the ocean across the street & a spacious balcony (10ft x 15ft). Which has chairs a bench & a table (nice place to dry out wet clothes/gear. Wi-Fi worked great and we had no issues.

We had a stress free, relaxed time (wish we could have stayed longer) in the bright airy condo. Great deal for the price. They nicely cleaned it everyday (at your preferred time). With an ATV, we came & went, quite a bit (visiting beaches, snorkeling & exploring the island); it couldn't have been easier. If you needed any supplies there’s a gas station with snacks, a bus stand or taxi; it's a block or less away. On the first level of the condo is covered parking. We parked our ATV there and climbed one flight of stairs to the front door. We found coming & going a snap. We'd come back in a heartbeat.

Here are the rest of our thoughts on the Condo:

ROOMS:
Master bedroom-
In the back of the condo & quiet (we were worried because the "fair by the sea" ran the week we arrived; it's close by but you don't really hear it in the rooms). There's a large walk in closet with plenty of space to store luggage or anything else. Main bed is a King & comfortable (more on the medium side). It has an attached bathroom (shower/tub combo).
Guest bedroom-
We didn't use but looked ok in size. It's smaller than the master bedroom, it was darker & bed was a double. It shares a pass through bath to the living room which is nice but the doors a little weird in the room. There's ceiling fans & auto ac units with remotes.
Bathrooms (2)
Neither is very large so more than one person would be tight but are nicely updated, good water pressure with plenty of hot water. One bath has a stand up shower (guest) & the other is a tub/shower combo (master bath). Rosie found us a hair dryer & gave us more towels & wash cloths. Good space to lay out your supplies on the counter & to store them.
Kitchen-
Open to living area & balcony, is nicely laid out with all the appliances & very well stocked. There was a nice size table (6 ppl) dining table; glass.
Living room-
Little tight with two couches (can see why an adult person on the pull out wasn't too happy). Smaller TV (good channels & quality)
Laundry-
There's one set of: washer & dryers; it’s in the next building over. Mohammed & Rosie left them open late for us to use. Machines were modern, clean, large capacity & worked great.
Pool-
In the back of the building the pool & pool area was very clean.

the view is obstructed and the water is across the street from the building. Mohamed was not there to meet us. It is sketchy and I am asking for my money back. Sucks, don't go

“good option”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The apartment is well equipped and comfortable, close to town and across the street to a not so nice beach. The sofa bed is very uncomfortable for an adult. The other bedrooms and bath are very good. Muhammed and Rossy were very kind and helpful.

it was pleasant even while our visit the rain was dominant. Bocas is a nice quiet hang out, has a lot of pristine beaches and the people are really friendly, Food is great and it was even possible to bring your car. Ferry leaves Almirante at 8.00 AM and comes back leaving Bocas at 16.00 PM, every day except on monday.
